SQL Training

By Garion11 ·
Greetings,

I am looking to learn SQL and thus my question is what is the best way I can learn SQL and where? Any links to books, webpages, articles, courses/schools I can attend that you guys can provide is appreciated. Please understand I have no clue about SQL, nothing, am an absolute beginner. I am not even sure what a relational database is...so should I start there...etc.

My background is Level 2 support and some level 3 support. In addition, I also troubleshoot and support networking aspect of the IT industry (hubs, routers, etc). So, I guess, programming is a whole new beast that I am interested in learning about. I was told to start with C then move onto SQL...is this a best way. Any advice you guys can give is appreciated. Thank you.

follow this link:
http://www.sqlcourse.com/
but you can find even other cours and documentations on net if you search.
If you have time you can learn SQL language in a short time, but don't forget you need practice.

write reports: crystal (or access) you can query and join data; you can click and see what the sql query it generates looks like.
browse data: use access and create link to databases and browse the tables. (by creating simple select all queries visually in access design grid view), then do a show sql.
free tools like winSQLlite (synametrics) link to database tables, and show the keys, can browse data (with prof vsn)
online courses - mindleaders.com has a kajillion (a very big#) courses on both programming, (vb, java, javascript, others), databases (oracle, others)and various versions of sql such as T-SQL, oracles' sql, etc.
read - books24x7.com (subscription site) or free sites such as informit.com, or cheaper subs site such as safari.oreilly.com can read full text & graphics of popular books online.
